iOS 5 Media Announcement
As one of a handful of Chester based registered Apple developers we’ve been running iOS 5 for a good few weeks now. It’s still a tad buggy with some fairly major flaws (I’ve not been able to play any of my music for 3 weeks) so we’re interested in what tomorrows media gathering could be about.
To my mind I suspect that the new device will be less of the v5 and more of the 4Gs and that the major enhancement will be the release of iOS5.The enhancements available in the new OS are worth the hype, with the new notification centre my personal favourite along with the iCloud. There’s a host of other new features which are worthy of a separate blog but my concern is still the stability of the latest release. I’m currently running 5 beta 7 and have been eagerly awaiting beta 8 for a number of weeks. This is what leads me to believe that the release of iOS5 is still further away than some people seem to believe. I’d expect a stable beta 8 release to need a few weeks before the release of the fabled Golden Master so that takes us to nearly November.
I could of course be way off the mark but I’ll be keeping a very close eye on the various Mac sites tomorrow eagerly awaiting some news. Hopefully I’m wrong and will be off to collect a spanking new iPhone 5 in a matter of days. Here’s hoping !
